Office of the Commissioners of Bankrupts and Court of Bankruptcy: Bankruptcy Enrolment Books
Bankruptcy enrolment books of the Office of the Commissioners of Bankrupts and Court of Bankruptcy. They include enrolments of commissions and fiats of bankruptcy, certificates of conformity, assignments, adjudications, appointment of assignees, examinations, depositions etc.
In some cases it is difficult to date these books; the dates attributed to the assignment books in the piece descriptions, for example, should be regarded as tentative. There might be a lapse of several years between the execution of a document and its enrolment.
B 5/1-19 are books containing enrolments of all the types of document mentioned above until 1832. After about 1824 there are individual series of books for the differing record types running parallel, and eventually superseding, the general enrolment books.
Office of the Commissioners of Bankrupts, 1571-1832
